Newcastle showed today that against the lesser teams of the Premier League we can be dominant.
A blistering start form Newcastle at Craven Cottage today saw the lads go 2-0 up after only 11 minutes.
From a training ground routine from a corner, Shelvey controlled the ball beautifully before powering home his first goal of the season and some goal it was.
Then two minutes later an Atsu shot was only blocked by the goalkeeper and there was Ayoze Perez to slot the ball home for his 13th goal of the season and his 12th in the Premier League.
After 61 minutes Schar made it look far too easy from a corner when he headed the ball home unchallenged.

And then at the death, Rondon powered his way forward in the inside-left position and his a shot that was blocked and he hit the ball again into the back of the net.
This boy has had some season for us – 12 goals on loan this season and 11 in the Premier League.
We finish in 13th place on 45 points – one more point than last season.
This performance was a clear message from Rafa Benitez to owner Mike Ashley on what he can do at Newcastle if given some financial support.
Ashley bothered to turn up today (game was in London) and he saw a masterful performance from Rafa and the lads.
A great performance from the lads to finish off the season on a high.
This was the 5th season running we have won our final game of the season.
Howay The Lads!!
